Local pastor accused
of being ‘peeping tom’


A Platte City pastor has been accused of peering into the bathroom window of a woman about the time she was taking a shower.

Kelvin B. Lambert, 39, was charged Wednesday morning with attempted invasion of privacy and trespass. Lambert is the pastor of Second Baptist Church in Platte City.

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd said Lambert was charged after being taken into custody on Tuesday, the day he allegedly peeped into the woman’s house.

According to court documents, Platte County Sheriff’s Department deputies were called to the Timber Park neighborhood near Platte City at 6:20 a.m. on Tuesday. A witness had reported a man running between houses in the neighborhood.

That witness told authorities that she saw the man, later identified as Lambert, standing on a plastic lawn chair peering into the bathroom window of a home in the neighborhood.

Lambert allegedly fled after being seen by the witness.

The adult female resident of the home told investigators she had taken a shower earlier that morning. She said she did not know Lambert and that he did not have permission to be on her property.

If convicted of attempted invasion of privacy, Lambert faces up to 15 days in jail or a fine up to $300. If convicted of trespass, he could be fined $200.

The case is being investigated by the Platte County Sheriff’s Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Humiston.
